"That's why he wears the C. He does it quietly. He does it best when he does his talking on the ice.
His scars will show it." - Stan Smyl
on Trevor Linden.
Linden, on how
he’s adjusting with being back with the Canucks: "It feels good. Its the type of situation where I feel I belong and I feel
like this is where I want to be. You have a lot of loyalty to an organization that you spend a long time with and a city you
play a long time for."
"Ohh baby, shake what your mama gave you, Trevor!" - Tom Larscheid
"There is no use slandering Trevor or embarrassing a guy who has devoted his heart and soul
to his team. I know for a fact that Trevor goes all out every time he laces on his skates. In the eight years I've been here,
there's no player I respect more than Trevor
Gino Odjick after Keenan humiliated Linden.
"He'll play. You bet he'll play. He'll play on crutches. And he'll play,
on Tuesday night, at Madison Square
Garden." - Jim Robson on
Linden as he broke his nose for the second time in the Stanley
wants to play in the playoffs. You don't know how good the good times were until you hit the bad times. But sometimes success
is just around the corner." --Trevor Linden
Trevor Linden, on viewing the site
of John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas: "I had to pinch myself seeing the grassy knoll and the book suppository building."
Trevor Linden, who tried a visor
this year and discarded it: "After 15 years without one it felt strange, but I thought
I'd give it a try, an honest try. Now this isn't going to make any sense, but when I returned I was playing extremely poorly
and that's why I decided to take it off... This is not an easy issue. And it's a bit uncomfortable for me because I know that
my personal answers don't make a lot of sense."
Linden was up on
stage in a skit and some kid asks him "So Trev how was the hockey game last night"
and Linden replies: "Well, it was good but we could have WON had our GOALIE not let in so many BAD
goals"...mean while Clouts is sitting in the audience staring up at Linden biting his tongue...so up goes Clouts to the
stage and they do their skit and kid asks again "So Dan how was the game last night?"
and Cloutier replies while looking at Linden "Oh you know... good but we could have won but you know
those OLD TIMERS they run out of steam so quickly they can't get back to help the d-men out"....Linden was just sitting
there laughing his ass off, and they bickered back and forth jokingly the whole time!
that the Vancouver Canucks are one of the hottest teams in hockey and back in the Western Conference playoff race after most
of us had written them off, is it all right to mention that GM Brian Burke knew what
he was doing when he acquired Trevor Linden from the Washington Capitals?" -- 2/2/02: Sports columnist Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette.
Dan Cloutier, on the addition of Trevor Linden: "It's huge to get
a veteran like him. He's got a lot of leadership skills and he wins a lot
of big faceoffs, so were certainly lucky and glad to have him. He helps everyone."
